A few observations (my nephew has a rather broad set of allergies so I have had to deal with this on several trips): In Germany, restaurant menus do mention allergens and additives. It seems to be mandatory EU-wide now but I have never seen it in France for example so I would not rely on it and ask for confirmation in any case. Industrial products and just ...

You need to be forward with the allergy, don't be shy and ASK. Have an "allergy translation card" (*) with you and/or with the person with the allergy. You need to have it with translation in the different languages that you will come into contact with in Europe. (*) google for that

No need to squat... You can approach this challenge with the sort of gear one sees at the Glastonbury Festival... This is a small, light-weight, aluminum frame with a canvas seat. The seat has a convenient hole in it. The whole ensemble fits comfortably in a backpack or medium sized shoulder bag. It's weight and compactness lends itself to discrete ...

The bad news is: it's such a broad topic & there are so many insurers out there that it's very time consuming to understand which insurances are actually "good" for you. The good news is: I had the same problem & did loads of research, so read on! Regarding health-related insurances, you are looking for what is usually called an "international ...

Any public hospital (Rumah sakit) can do i safely. I am not saying that Indonesian hospitals are good, mind you. As it would be too complicated to give medical students a comprehensive teaching, the medical school mostly rehearse the basic gesture again and again. So they definitely can make a vaccine. I would say the problem will not be cleanness but ...

When you look at ingredients, the ones which were classified as allergens are now bolded. This includes some americanisms like milk listing as ingredients 100% milk (bolded) with a note that this contains milk :)

I recently visited Thailand and got lots of in-depth information about it. It REALLY depends on what you're doing, when you're doing it, where you're doing it, how long you're doing it there, how well-protected you plan to be, and how much risk you're willing to take. Malaria is more of a problem in northern Thailand. There are more mosquitos during the ...

Finding gluten-free and especially vegetarian food is still very tricky in Peru. Why: (Due to differences in languages and culture) Vegetarian food without meat (comida sin carne) often means food without every meat except chicken. Because "carne" does not include "pollo" or processed meat like ham, salami, ground meat. It is a common missunderstanding in ...

I've very bad knees after a traffic accident some 20 years ago and have had to deal with it. The answer is simple but not pleasant: finish as quickly as possible and hope it doesn't hurt too much. If there's somewhere you can support yourself, it's a lot easier, whether a wall, door, or anything you can use. Just be happy you're not a local with arthritis ...

A friend of mine who has a long list of allergies and intolerances makes her own translation list for each country where she is going. With a diverse list like Pork and Chicken (but no other meats) Apricots, several nuts but not all, some spices, apples and milk in all its shapes, she will have to talk with the staff in restaurants wherever she eats. But as ...

A friend of mine had her knee in a plaster cast when in Taizé for a visit, three years running. No bending of the leg at all. In Taizé at the time they had very few sit down toilets and mostly squat ones. The sit down ones always had long lines and she did not want to walk long distance and wait (or be lucky to be let in ahead of the queue) so she tried and ...
